    Blue Lake Park course: Fairview, OR

    The Fairview Planning Commission is moving along with installing a WORLD CLASS disc golf course designed by Portland's Dave Feldberg.

    There is an important step approaching and John Gessner, the Fairview planning director (and avid disc golfer) believes that there needs to be a show of support from the disc golf community to show up before the Fairview Planning Commission to show community support for the disc golf course being planned.

    Time and Place: January 11, 6:30pm. 1300 NE Village St, Fairview

    We don't need hundreds of people but a turn out of 20-30 people would really pump them up.

    So if local golfers would like to see a new WORLD CLASS course very close to downtown Portland, this would be a critical time and place to make an impression. Hope to see ya all there!

    No, they're not likely to say anything to you, but why push our luck? At the moment, we have a very good working relationship with the rangers at Milo, but why put that at risk?
    I'm with Jeff on this one. If anyone knows of a courtesy requests anyone has made (rangers, city officials, even neighbors) about a course we should try to accommodate if it's reasonable or we risk losing our courses. How many "it's been fun but ________ is closed" posts have we seen this year?

    I am going to go with the concept that the opening is tomorrow, Weds 15 Aug 2012, not today, Tues 14 Aug 2012.

    And here is the crux of the matter as far as I am concerned. Who is they? When did they say it? Who was there when it was said? If it is an official decision, shouldn't there at least be a sign to let the people who weren't there know about the decision?

    Funny thing about that, you can play an awesome par 5 hole to the basket by the bathrooms very nicely. So nicely that I got a 4 last time I played it...

    Sure the BSF layout pin isn't in its place, but that hole was played to the regular course basket long before the BSF pin was placed in the ground...

    All I am asking for is a small sign...not everybody comes to this forum and reads these posts, or has a reliable memory, or is sober enough to remember...

    Oh, and for the record, I always ask to play the regular tee pad but get outvoted every time by my group.

    Then how are park goers supposed to know this? Unless there is a sign that states otherwise or a park ranger to tell you differently, 8 am to sunset is all you can go on. Sunset tomorrow night is officially 8:19 pm.

    This whole idea of idea of "unwritten rules" is a crock.

    This is it. The grand opening for the disc golf course at Blue Lake Park is tomorrow (8/15) at 11:00am.

    If possible, come on out and join us as we cut the ribbon and open the course up for play. If you can't make it tomorrow, come on by when you can and enjoy the fruit of many, many hours of hard work.

    On behalf of Stumptown Disc Golf and Next Adventure, I would like to thank the following people for hours and hours of hard work and dedication to this project. Without their help this would have been an almost impossible task.

    Tyler Christensen
    Carl Thorne
    Kevin Mykelz
    Murray Prictor
    Josh Dearing
    Jeremy Fancher
    Bryan Knudsen

    A lot of people have showed up to our work parties and I am very thankful for that, but these guys went above and beyond the call of duty. Hopefully, every time they walk into Blue Lake Park they feel the sense of pride they deserve for helping to make it happen.

    I heard a rumor that it was opening Tomorrow! Can anyone confirm or deny this? What are "park hours"? I'll be driving out there after work if it is open till sunset (and might need all the sunlight I can get to finish by the sound of things).

    Great work party, Tons of clearing (I cannot detail all as I spent the day at #7 pin). Stairs in on the tough pin hill shot #7, long grass cleared for approach to pin #7. Gravel on treads, and path cut in. Fancher has pics, not sure when he will have time to post...
